I have 2 Zen Habitats and use a 24" fixtures w/ a Arcadia 12% bulb in one tank and a Reptisun 10.0 T 5 in the other tank - both are inside the tanks and approx 12-15 inches from basking decor- you can use a Arcadia 14% bulb but you need a low decor piece for it in the tank - I have the 14% in the one tank now that is getting changed out to the T5 next month -- that fixture at the moment is strapped to the top of the tank and basking decor piece is approx 18 inches --- the 14% bulb is a real strong bulb - I wanted to go w/ another Arcadia 12% but they were sold out so its getting switched to the Reptisun -- if you need to see the tank let me know I will post a pic of it

I see they are out of stock on the fixtures --- go figure but you can look at other places for the fixture - at least you can see what they look like

That is good just dont use the bulb that comes w/ it -- it is not for reptiles so get either the Reptisun 10.0 T 5 bulb or the Arcadia 12% bulb both are real good bulbs-- the Zoo Med would be the best but if you cant afford it get the Vivarium --

Okay I’ll probably just go with the zoo med one. What is the difference between the regular t5 fixture from zoo med & the HO one or is it all the same ? Because I found the HO one on another site but just thought I’d ask before I buy it

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
